Annuity.org published its latest feature, “Your Roadmap to Financial Wellness,” on March 7. The piece explores the modern roadblocks many Americans face on the road to financial wellness and what it means to be financially free in today’s economic climate.

While the concepts of budgeting and saving continue to be fundamental basics for financial health, there’s more to consider when it comes to reaching financial wellness in the current landscape.

“When I started working on this project, I thought it would be a how-to guide on the steps you can take to achieve financial wellbeing throughout your life,” Senior Financial Writer and Financial Wellness Facilitator Terry Turner said. “But as I interviewed experts who’ve done extensive research into how Americans view their individual financial wellness, it was clear that decades-old conventional wisdom about savings, emergency funds and retirement planning went out the window.”

This feature helps illustrate how student loans, COVID-related economic upheaval and the so-called Great Resignation have impacted the ways members of different generations view their own financial wellness.

The Annuity.org editorial team conducts thorough research and collaborates with financial industry experts to provide readers with detailed and dependable information.
